The Same Four Eyes

Had an appointment to have an eye exam first thing this morning.  I hadn't had one since 2007 and hadn't had new glasses made since 2006. I thought surely I would be getting a new prescription; not so. The reason for my tired eyes is just deteriorating muscle tone. The feeling that I can't see things as clearly as I once did is due to the beginning of cataracts. Boo.

The good news is that my retina and macula are in good shape and for that I am grateful. My doctor does a very thorough exam and I am just waiting now for the medication that dilates the pupils to wear off before going to the sewing room - it's quite bright there most days. I will need to restrict my sewing activities to daytime till I get my Daylight Lamp back I think.


  1. i too have an eye test soon, and am sure I need to have upgrades all round, reading, distance,
    and computer ones. Hope your new lenses are what the Dr ordered!! Cheers from Jean.

  3. I'm happy to hear that since I have central serous on my retina. I'm glad for you!

  4. Thanks Jean!
    Sandra, I don't know what that is or what it means for your future vision, but pray that there will be a treatment for you.
